Fall is in the air

Beautiful day in Iowa. Fall is in the air--my favorite time of the year. Started my day out with my Daughters of the American Revolution. meeting with a new Regent and officers and some new ideas on encouraging getting to know each other and lots of great new projects and ideas. The Daughters of the American Revolution is an organization with a deeply rich history while also being truly relevant in today’s world. More than 930,000 women have joined the organization since it was founded close to 125 years ago. They became members to honor their heritage as well as make a difference in their communities across the country and the world. To Learn more about the amazing history of the DAR and what members are doing today to continue that legacy visit

Had family over for dinner yesterday and today. Last night it was daughter, son-in-law, three oldest grands, and grand dog over for homemade pizza and game night. Last night' shame was Monopoly Empire, a fast-moving game. Tonight it was son, daughter-in-law, three youngest grands, and grand dog for grilled steaks, baked potatoes, corn on the cob, homemade French bread, and chocolate chip cookies. Followed dinner up with Monopoly Empire -- two games. Son won both games.

Finished up the night on the deck, in the dark with a glass of wine and wine-bottle lamp burning.
